Antonio Marinucci is the managing director of V2C Strategists LLC in Brooklyn, N.Y., executive editor of DFI Deep Foundations magazine, and lecturer at the Tandon School of Engineering at NYU. Dr. Marinucci has more than 20 years of practical experience in geo-structural design and construction on more than 40 projects involving super and substructure bridge design, geotechnical engineering, temporary and permanent earth retention systems, drilled and driven deep foundation systems, underpinning, and ground improvement systems. Dr. Marinucci is an NHI course instructor. He has lectured at short courses, seminars, universities, and conferences in North/Central/South America, India and China.
Dr. Marinucci has performed research on earthquake drains in conjunction with the NEES Grand Challenge: Seismic Risk Mitigation for Port Systems project and evaluated the effect of Earthquake Drains on pore water pressure generation and dissipation in liquefiable sand via analytical numerical simulations, small-scale centrifuge testing, and full-scale field testing. Small-scale centrifuge testing was performed at the Center for Geotechnical Modeling at the University of California at Davis. Full-scale field experiments were performed at a site in N.C. on an untreated site and a site with full-scale drains using both a vibratory mandrel excitation and a mobile vibroseis shake.
Dr. Marinucci has authored or coauthored more than 35 technical publications on design and construction applications, practical research, and legal issues relating to geotechnical engineering and the geo-construction industry. He is an active member of numerous professional organizations and technical committees, including ASCE/GI, ADSC, DBIA, DFI, and TRB, and has chaired, organized, moderated, and/or presented at various technical events for these organizations.
